Refreshment & Shopping

Trujillo has no end of places where you can rest, refuel and take in the local colour

There are three large supermarkets to fill your fridge with your favourite treats, and no end of local arts-and-crafts for sale. Market day is Thursday, with outdoor and covered markets in C/ de Fernán Ruiz Altamirano
